Art + Tech: Salon

Building community at the intersections of art and technology

Stanford’s Art + Tech Salon is a quarterly get-together where Stanford affiliated artists, researchers, scholars, and students who work at the intersection of art + tech gather to share work and resources, engage in discussion and build community. The goal of the Salon is to become a go-to forum where Stanford faculty, students, visiting artists, and interested community members can locate and learn about the broad range of art + tech activities happening on campus.

The quarterly meetings are a shared space to develop an ongoing dialog about our ideas and work, as well as to get to know each other. Typically, at each salon, 2-3 faculty members, visiting artists, and/or students will share their work and pose discussion questions to the group.

Time will also be reserved for open mic, general announcements and smaller group socializing. To help further visibility for the exciting work taking place at the intersection of art + tech on campus, each Salon presenter will be asked to create a 1-minute video introducing their work. These videos will be posted and archived on the Art + Tech website, so that this repository becomes an ongoing and expanding resource for people to find and learn about each other and our work as well.

Sponsored by Stanford Arts, the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI), in collaboration with the Stanford Arts+Tech faculty.


April 25, 2023, 4:30-6:00pm, Gates Computer Science Building, 119
Featuring artists Brett Amory and Joshua Moreno, and computer scientist Mina Lee discussing generative AI and text-to-image tools that impact the art world and open up new creative possibilities.

Brett Amory’s multidisciplinary practice is based on the intersection of quotidian and habitual engagements with the everyday world. His works consider moments of visual perception that precede interpretation. Working primarily in painting and installation, he uses the ordinary as a vehicle for extending the familiar into the realms of the unfamiliar. His work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally, including at the National Portrait Gallery, London; the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh; the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Indiana; Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco; and de Young Museum, San Francisco. Amory earned a MFA from Stanford University and a BFA from the Academy of Arts University. He lives and works in Oakland California.

Joshua Moreno’s work examines the overlapping relationship between the natural and human-made environment and highlights patterns and systems of efficiency that exist within them. Through installation, drawing, and film, he re-evaluates the everyday spaces and objects that surround us, with added attention to elemental phenomena. He was born and raised in Watsonville, California. In 2011, he graduated from the University of California San Diego with a BFA in art practice, and in 2022 graduated from Stanford University with an MFA in studio art. Presently, he is teaching drawing courses at Stanford University.

Mina Lee is a final-year Ph.D. candidate at Stanford University. Her goal is to design and evaluate language models to enhance our productivity and creativity and understand how these models change the way we write. She was named one of MIT Technology Review’s Korean Innovators under 35 in 2022, and her recent work on human-AI collaborative writing received an Honorable Mention Award at CHI 2022 and was featured in various media outlets, including The Economist.
